In Play

"Sungka" - Muntinlupa, 24 July 2015
“Sungka” – Muntinlupa, 24 July 2015

let us

play

a game,

shall we?

 

pit our

minds

against each

other

and see

who

outsmarts

who.

 

strength

has no

bearing;

it’s all

a matter

of the

mind:

wit and

intellect and

cunning

come into

play.

 

i catch

your eye

and smirk

and –

oh mistake

upon grave

mistake –

i miscalculate

and you

smirk,

winning yet

again.
